YUMA - As part of the on-going effort to widen a portion of State Route 72 and State Route 95 south of Parker, the Arizona Department of Transportation will need to close a lane of traffic beginning Monday (April 4). On each work day through early June, a lane closure at a different point along the project area will be required to provide a safe work zone and will intermittently affect both east and westbound traffic on SR 95 and SR 72 for the next few months. All drivers will need to come to a stop as workers alternate traffic through the open lane in the construction zone. Please be prepared to stop and plan ahead for delays.
What to expect during construction:
•Work will take place from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
•Speed limit will be reduced to 35 mph during work hours.
•Speed limit will be restored to 55 mph after-hours and on weekends.
•Law enforcement will be on-site to control traffic and monitor speeds.
ADOT advises drivers to proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.
ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but there is a possibility that unscheduled closures or restrictions may occur. Weather can also affect a project schedule.
